Butternut Squash, a wonderful fruit but yet used as a vegetable to create many savory dishes. One butternut squash recipe in particular I enjoy often is Butternut Squash, Apple and Chicken Pan Roast. The main reason why I enjoy it so much is because of the simplicity of the dish.
Butternut Squash, Apple and Chicken Pan Roast is a one pot meal as you can also call it. You have your meat, fruit and your vegetables on one plate and the rest is history. No need to fuss about a side dish or a main dish when you have 3 ingredients in 1 meal.
Butternut Squash, Apple and Chicken Pan Roast is prepared with fresh herbs and spices that delivers a wonderful aroma not only to the chicken legs and thighs but also to the squash and apples. Whenever squash is roasted with fresh or dried herbs it is a perfect blend of sweet, spicy and salty flavors. Because squash is available all year round it is no wonder that this particular dish will be the favorite of many people.
During winter and fall months we always need a dish that does not take long to prepare and delicious to share with our family and love ones – why not prepare this one today?
The instructions for this wonderful meal are simple. The Butternut Squash, Apple and Chicken Pan Roast recipe from Food & Wine was updated by me because I always enjoy adding my own taste and a little bit of more spices.
When I first read the recipe, adding only salt, pepper and sage did not do much for me. I know that apples and squash have lots of flavors but the chicken needed something special, an all-purpose seasoning. I chose Mrs. Dash, not because it is always available in my pantry but because it has all the spices to make this chicken dish taste wonderful.
A couple of tablespoons of Mrs Dash along paprika are the spices you will need for this recipe. Roasted at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, just enough time to get dinner on the table.
Butternut Squash, Apple and Chicken Pan Roast is a wonderful dish to enjoy any day with a wonderful salad.
